Unmasking The Religious Right War In America

It's said that eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.   That's especially true if you are a persecuted or hated minority group under constant microaggressive and macroaggressive attack.

You have to know your enemy, call them out, be vigilant for and respond to any attacks aimed at undermining your humanity and by extension, your human rights no matter how small they seem on the surface. 

Alvin McEwen of the Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters blog and Pam's House Blend fame (and who I had the pleasure of meeting during Netroots Nation 2012) has been diligently documenting the Religious Right and their unrelenting neo-fascist attacks on the TBLG community while cloaked in Christian drag.

Alvin has spent the last year putting together a booklet that is a handy guide for detecting those tactics, debunking and eviscerating their talking points, and giving you the information and tools to develop counterprogramming against them entitled How They See Us: Unmasking The Religious Right War In America.

McEwen's booklet is timely in the wake of the Religious Right taking their war against the GLBT community global and exporting their hate based oppression of our rainbow brothers and sisters with successful results in Uganda, Nigeria and Russia.  The conservafaith-based haters are also attempting to spread their lies and disinformation in Brazil, Latin America and the Caribbean. 

It's available for download and viewing by clicking this link, so if you want to understand the mindset of the Forces of Intolerance, might be a good idea to check this out.
